The trick is to not LET it push other elements around. Try creating text
boxes or tables that are not moved or altered by the insertion of chunks
of text of undetermined (and changing) length.

Do NOT rely on tabs and justification to do that for you.

If you'd like to send me a sanitized example I'd be willing to try my hand
at it. Good luck!
